Twin Cities Book Festival 09Are you one of those who just can’t get your fill of books? Do you like to meet the people behind the scenes? This Saturday, the Eleventh Annual Twin Cities Book Festival celebrates the books, magazines, authors, readers, and even publishers that make up our cities’ vibrant community of the word.

Organized by Rain Taxi Review of Books, this event is free and open to the public.

Press authors Patricia Hampl (St. Paul Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tell Me True), Pete Hautman and John Coy (Libraries of Minnesota), Wing Young Huie (Frogtown, The University Avenue Project), N. M. Kelby (A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts), and Brett Laidlaw (Trout Caviar: Recipes from a Northern Forager) join scores of others to talk about their works and give tips on writing. A full day of programming at the Children’s Pavilion (get them started right!), includes a yo-yo master and Bruce the Bug Guy. The complete schedule is here.

Stop by the Minnesota Historical Society Press table, where Press staffer Leslie Rask will be showing off our newest books and two Press authors will sign: Wing Young Huie at 1:30 and Brett Laidlaw at 2:00. See you there!
